Chrysalis Records Acquisition
We are delighted to announce that Blue Raincoat Music has taken over full ownership of the iconic British independent label, Chrysalis Records.
Our deal will see Chrysalis co-founder Chris Wright CBE, reunited with his legendary label. We are thrilled to have Chris as part of our Blue Raincoat team, returning as Non Executive Chairman of the Chrysalis record business 27 years after selling the company to EMI.
The impressive Chrysalis roster includes The Specials, Sinead O’Connor, The Waterboys, Ten Years After, Fun Boy Three, Ultravox, Generation X, the Two Tone label and much more. Our aim is to bring back the true spirit of independent music to the industry and make Chrysalis a new home for many established artists to sit alongside the incredible acts we already have.
